Staff Sgt. Joshua Montambeault, 86th Aerospace Medicine Squadron food safety non-commissioned officer in charge, dedicates hours of his time on stage as a local actor in the Kaiserslautern Military Community. Montambeault started acting at 15 years old when he was first stationed in Germany as an Army dependent. Since then, he has been awarded the 2015 Best Military Performance in a Play for his performance in “12 Angry Men,” as part of the Topper awards.
